Teaching 6-axis Industrial Robot Programming Via Simulation and Hands-on Laboratory

In the re-design of the curriculum, Mr. Edwin Ho (SoE) and his team wanted to provide  students  with more opportunities to learn “by-doing” and be able to have hands-on practice, explore and experiment with different possibilities with the equipment.  As such, the teaching team leveraged on the use of the WINCAP III programming tool to enable students to practice their programming code with a virtual robot within a safe environment.  This creates an alternative learning space for students to practice, learn from their mistakes and improve their programming skills.  This experience also deepens students’ learning as they are better able to see the impact of their programming and have a clearer understanding of the concepts and how they  work.
